I had saltimbocca a la Romano. It was thinly sliced and tender with a wonderful light sauce. Side of spaghetti. Nice selection of bread. Got seated immediately without a reservation. Expensive but worth it.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
